Probably a Northwood, because they are rather cheap now


Nice system, only weak point is the 5700 Ultra, but a very good system for $1000

Is the mobo i865 or i875??

Yes and they use more voltage Did it have a C after the 3.2ghz, or E??

E means Prescott, EE means Extreme Edition and C means Northwood
